New Moon US tickets, premiere update
New Moon is about 2 months away, and tickets in the US are already selling out - fast!!
Fan frenzy is already breaking records for "The Twilight Saga: New Moon." Online ticket sellers MovieTickets and Fandango report that the follow-up to last year's hit from Summit Entertainment, which sold $191.5 million worth of tickets in the U.S. and Canada, is selling out screenings earlier than any other movie to date. "New Moon" has sold out 50 showtimes of nearly 22,000 offered on Fandango and 13 showtimes of 2,912 offered on MovieTickets. Most of the sold-out shows are at or around midnight Nov. 20, when the movie debuts. The two websites started selling "New Moon" tickets extraordinarily early -- Aug. 31 for Fandango and Sep. 10 for MovieTickets -- as the theater chains they work with began scheduling screenings in anticipation of a huge first weekend. The first "Twilight" grossed a stellar $36 million on its Friday opening, reflecting pent-up demand among fans of the best-selling books.
There's also rumours that the world premiere of New Moon in London has been scrapped! Gossip Cop has this to say:
Gossip Cop has confirmed with a spokesman for the production that London was never slated for the opening. Los Angeles was always to host the world premiere on November 16. ”Summit all along has been working towards an L.A.-based premiere,” a source close to the production confirms to Gossip Cop, adding, “there were never any plans for a world premiere of the film in London.”
